with the united states that's strong and at the same time they're a democracy that is an islamic democracy, a political islamic party running it and charting a path to try to play all different angles and they criticized israel. they criticized iran. certainly, in the days ahead it's interesting to watch. >> jim, watching morsi and the president's relationship develop and the president give the interview about not being an ally, not being an enemy, but egypt has been such a critical ally over the years, certainly through mubarak and relied heavily on the billions of dollars that we have sent and taxpayer dollars. does it come down now more to who needs more more? >> egypt has a treaty definition is and has been an ally and probably will be an ally. i think an underreported aspect of what obama's comments could have been interpreted as is a personal message while egypt is an ally, you know, it is not -- there are strings attached and we need to make sure to do business with each other, man to man, person to person, leader to leader. so yeah. i think that morsi is charting his own path but h
, but these are still again over this movie or film made in the united states. >> reporter: hi there, tamron. the protests were actually about both. the majority was pointed at that film. not enough information has gone out to many countries about those cartoons published in france. across in the border in pakistan we saw violent protests. 15 people were killed as tens of thousands went out to the streets. for the most part throughout the muslim world we didn't see that rage we expected after friday prayers. here in afghanistan we went out to the protests. there were several hundred out there, but they were peacefully protesting. theg they said they didn't want to resort to violence, but they're calling on government to cut all ties to america and france because they say the government allowed these films to be published and these cartoons to be published as well. they're mad at the american and french governments, and they said in afghanistan and other muslim countries they would not resort to violence because of that. tamron. >> the secretary of state hillary clinton is meeting with the pa

as the united states prepares to commemorate 9/11 and as the war in afghanistan is an issue in the presidential race. joining me now is evan coleman. we say it's an issue in the presidential race. actually, you know the headline out of the past two weeks. mitt romney did not mention afghanistan in his big speech. his people said he gave the speech the day before right before that. with that said, are you surprised we're not talking about afghanistan more as it relates to it? >> i'm not. it's politically unpopular. no candidate wants to get up and say, i'm very aggressive in favor of a continued presence in afghanistan. nobody wants to say that. mitt romney is smart enough to understand that. >> let me talk about the prisba prison. how do we process this? >> we were what happened to abu ghraib in baghdad. it's not good to have prisons in foreign countries. the problem is this. number one, the afghan government has a terrible record in terms of keeping control of the prisons. >> there have been breakouts. >> huge breakouts back a few years ago in kandahar, someone blew a hole in the side of the p
